it seems the battle tha sarah palin picked las month with dav letterman was jt the beginning. not the beginni really, what was the most rectresult of lots and lots of practice. before the alaskan governor was feigning outrage, she was fighting with john mccain's senior staffnd there is her wa on the truth. cbs ws has herands on a h of e-mails writn three weeks before the election, and show how frustrated senator mccain's staff had become with therepublican's chceor running mate and she with them. governor palin became upset about report that raised questions about her husband's membership in an independence party. todd palin had been a member o that pty for seven years, which wldrslate to not a member at all, given sarah palin'selationship to the truth. quotg from e-ml er one, from governor palin to campaign
10:20 pm
manager rick davis and palin senior adviser, pleaseget in front of that ridiculs issue that's cropped up a day today, two reporter a protester's sign and many shtouts, all claiming todd's involvement an anti-american political party. it's bull and i don'twant to have toeep reacting this. please have statement give on this so it's put to bed. sponse, ignore te was a member of the ai my understanding is yes. that is partf their platform. do not engage th protesrs. if a reporte asks, say it's ridiculous. todd loves america. that advice apparently was not good enough tore governor lin. carb copfive more people on her respon. that's not part o their platform. he was only a member because indendent alasksoo often check that alaska independent boon voter registrations thinking it ju mes
10:21 pm
non-partan. he caught his ror when changing our addssnd checked the right box. itill want it fied. a goveor who takes ainor event, overreacts and rns it into sometng more menacing. sound familiar? schmidt's next reply would be thfinal word on the subject. secession, it isheir entire reason for existence. aursory examinion of the weite shows that the party exists for that only reason, that is stated goal on the frt page of e website. ourecoindicate that todd was amember for seven ars. if this is incorrect, then w need to understand the discrepancy. the statement you are ggesting toe released would be accurate. inaccuracy would bring greater media attention. there have bn no inquiries into this and you reive no estions about it. if you are asked aboutit, you should smile, and say many alaskans join the party because it speakso a tradition of potil independence. todd loves his untry.
10:22 pm
we will not put out a situation and inflame thisnd create a situation where john has to address this also the th author of renegade, the maki of the prident, richard wolf good ening. >> good ening, david. >> the relee of these e-mails, can governor palin ever cla not to know the truth about aip and todd palin again? >> first of all, these are extraordinarye-mails the substae for a minute, you have a glimpseof a mind-t of a candidate for the vice presidency of the united states just a few weeksaway from eltion day, just few hours ay from a big bate and, o course, this devastangly bad lationship with the guy running the campaign. and, of cose it does come back to this little pesky thing call the truth and the nature of that political bckground and what's fascinati he is that either sarah palin is trying to dupe her staff or she's trying
10:23 pm
to dupe the voters or being delusional aut the nate of the alaskan independence party. steve schmidt is right to think this is a political nightmare. thatill be the case moving forward. if palin runs agn as we all, frany, expect her to do, s will still face these questions. e better get her story trait straight. >> do these e-mails draw into estion governor palin's slperyationship with the truth an her tendency to bend facts at will? >> well, let's just be clr that her supporte don't sm to care th way. this is a candidate who had a semi dissatisfactory relationship to e truth whether was about her foreign travels or science or, in this case, her sband's political backound. and it doesn seem to bother em. they lik her performance so much that they'reilling to forgive all of the things. a candidate at the top of the ticket, which ishat we're really looking at in a few years fr now, someone who aspires
10:24 pm
tohat position anyway,he will face these questions in a ch more pointed way. , the dodge that steve schmidt sets up here, your husband loves america, really isn't actuay compatiblewith the alaskan independence policy, because secession is not ur best way to sw your love o country. >>here are, of course, a lot ofstranlgis who are not going anywhere. surely, there must be more e-mails like these, and more people s has attacked who might be willing to leak those details. right. and, remember, the pois we're seeing here will take a lg time to work its way through the body of the gop her this is not just about sarah palin and steve schmidt. it is a broader fight that takes inr want of a better word, the cheney clan personified by crystal and the bsh side of things, nicolle wallace steve schmidt. there's a bigger fight gng on
10:25 pm
here about sarah palin that re doesn't have ch to do with r, but will continue, suspect, beyond her candidacy non-candidy in a f years' me. >> the chain of even behind these e-mails and the content with his recent events, what are to overreact, takeinor dency problems and turn them into major es? >> this goes bk to e quality at publicans needo think about of their next presidential candidate. you ed someone, as i explaid iny book, focused on t tegy of the bigger picture. schmidt was trying to get his candidate to do. if you get easily distrted, reporters will say can you halehe distractions of e job? believe me, in th white house, there are lots of distraction. >> richard olff msnbc, and auorf "renegade," terrific book. great to see you. thanks for coming on toght. >> thank you david. >> you're welcome. opulture and force
